Since Cee is taking a break for a few weeks from her Share Your World challenges, I decided to ask you the readers to come up with questions from me to use for my Share Your World post for this week. I want to thank the individuals who took the time to come up with questions. You came up with some good and tough questions, questions that I really had to think about. So here goes:
The first question I combined the writers two questions into one and you will see why in my response.
When you were in 8th grade what did you want to be? When you were in 12th grade what did you want to be?
The answer to this question goes back further than 8th grade. Ever since I can remember I have always wanted to be on the radio. I would listen to Jack Buck call the St Louis Cardinal games, Dan Kelly call the St. Louis Blues hockey games, and then a man by the name of Jim White who did an overnight free form talk show, not like the talk shows today where everything is political. I would fell asleep with a radio under my pillow listening to these men. As I got older my taste turned to music and a man by the name of John Ulett on KSHE 95 became my idol if you will. So in 8th grade and 12th grade and beyond that has always been what I wanted to do. I did work in radio during college and for a few years after college part-time, but I did not stick with it much to my frustration now.
What was your favorite book in your childhood/elementary days? In your high school days?
I really could not tell you what my favorite book in grade school was, I know one book I read a lot was “Charlotte’s Web” I also read a lot of the Encyclopedia Brown series. In high school, just about anything from Stephen King, but the book I loved the most from him was “The Stand” I have read the book countless times and I still never grow tired of it.
If you could talk to your President now for 5 minutes what would you tell him?
I can’t answer that or the IRS might start auditing my taxes. I am really disappointed in all of the leaders in the US government from both parties. I think both parties have failed the American people.
If you were to bury a time capsule for people to find in the future what 3 things would you put in it to describe your life?
Something related to the Peanuts characters. I have loved the Peanuts comics ever since I could read. I wanted to be cool like Snoopy and Woodstock, have the wisdom of Linus, but unfortunately I have the luck of Charlie Brown. That would be item number one. Item number two, The Beatles album “Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band”. The Beatles have been my favorite group, and that album is my favorite album. It also represent my love for music so it would serve two purposes. Number three the movie “City Slickers”. The movie represents my love of westerns, my dreams of living during the old west, and then the plot, the characters in the movie searching for that one thing.
If you were going to be dropped on a deserted island to try and survive for 6 weeks who would be the one person you would take to help you survive?
I am making the assumption that the one person was meant to be someone who was not a family member, so my choice would be MacGyver because he could make cool stuff out of anything.
Thank you again to the individuals who submitted questions for me. I enjoyed this very much and hope you have also. I may try it again next week.
